A lovely place for a convivial evening

Lovely food in an open pleasant surrounding with very hepful staff. Only spoiled by the bad behaviour of a group of women who arrived shrieking like banshees and spent the evening squealing so loud you'd have thought they were killing a suckling pig. Another lovel meal at this top venue but please... read more

The food at this restaurant is always excellent and for the quality really good value for money. Even the wine was reasonably priced but very palatable. Nothing to complain about and everything to praise.

Ate O'Clock is a lovely restaurant with a great menu. It is centrally located but tucked away down an alleyway. Overall we had a very nice evening and the food was very well presented. The only slight niggle was having to try and get the staff's attention when we wanted anything. Attentive staff should notice that your drinks are empty... More

We've been visiting Ate o'clock for many years now and the only thing that's changed is the menu. The place strikes a fine balance between top notch food and great value for money. This aspect was brought home this weekend when we ate with friends at one of York's newer (more trendy ?) eateries on the Friday followed by Ate... More

Our son booked this restaurant for our wedding anniversary. It's a small place tucked away in York city center. We cannot praise the hospitality and standard of food highly enough. The steak was done to perfection, whilst the sea bream was just fabulous. The food choice is varied with many deals on the specials board. If you are in York... More

A lovely little place found by accident as we were visiting The Pavement Church just adjacent to the 8's entrance. The entrance to this place is interesting and once inside it is warm & cosy. And everywhere there is a profusion of clocks of all shapes and sizes and all stopped at 8 o ' clock. Thank goodness they are... More

Lovely welcome, good choices on the menu, something for everyone. Very tasty meal. It's been a few years since we ate here, but like to book a table when we are visiting York, the food and service are still as good. A hidden gem, make sure you try it.

We have tried to eat here a couple of times when we visit York. Today we managed and we were not disappointed. The food is obviously freshly prepared by someone who cares. The service is unobtrusive and the value for money is fantastic. We shall definitely be going back on our next visit to York.

My friend and I ate here last night after seeing such positive reviews on T.A and we were not disappointed. The food was fabulous, the atmosphere was buzzing and the staff were great. We will definitely be returning.
